The quick-Filter should add quotation marks automatically to every searchword and using a semicolon as delimiter when using more than one searchwords for multiple filtering.

And it shoulf be another namefilter added which can use a List as Filter Criterion. The delimiter is then just a line break.
Here a example of a namefilter. The source of such searchwords is most time a Excel table.

This searchwords in this list can contain spaces. This mean, also here should the quotation marks automatically added. The number of searchwords should be infinitely.

I have found a program (BC) which contain such a filter in April 2016. But it was my idea, i posted it long time ago on the freecommander forum. :)

What du you mean with quick filter ? The view filter that filter what files is shown in the panel ?

If you use the Advanced Filters there you can do this.. There you have a ".." button there where you can paste in multiline with one file per line
And if it find spaces it will automatically put quots around it

I meen with quick-Filter the small Filter-Field on Explorer-Panel right down.

The Advanced Filter (I needed a little time to find it in keyboard customization) is really good. The "..."-Button (Matching Values; Enter one Value per line) i have not found yet. I should really first reading the documentation, sorry.

But this Advanced Filter is what i need, thanks.

Yes that are the View Filter.. It filters the 'view', of what items are visible or not.
If you right click on the "Filter" icon next to the field you have a Advanced Filter option.
There you have a Define Advanced View Filter.

It is not in the doc yet..  The doc is not updated with the new advanced filters. But you see it in the dialog. there is a big [..] button after the input field

There so no default hotkey for it. But you can assign on in the Keyboard customization.
(Module : Explorer Panel , Category : Module specific,  Command :  "Define Advanced View Filter" )
